Overall very disappointed, I have eaten in many Ivy’s... this was the poorest by far.
Very expensive for very little food. Service efficient but that’s it. Ordered cheese, hard from the fridge so very little taste. It’s such a shame as other Ivy’s have been far better on food, service, and value for money. I live close by, but will be travelling out to another Ivy if I want an overall good experience.

My husband and I came to Ivy Chelsea to belatedly celebrate my big birthday and wedding anniversary. Up to now this has been our favourite Ivy amongst the collection. The place was busy and buzzing on arrival. I had asked for a table at the back near or in conservatory. Unfortunately none was available on arrival and was given table in middle back which was ok. The waiter who initially served us was very pleasant and efficient with getting our drinks and taking our order . However at some point there was a switch over . We had the zucchini to start with which were lovely. My husband had the fish of the day and I had a burger with side dish of sweet potatoes . All very nice. We ended the meal with chocolate bomb which was ok but not as good as on previous occasions. We had planned to order a couple of rose champagnes at the end of the meal but we could not attract attention of replacement waiter nor were we asked if we wanted anymore drinks. Instead we were asked if we wanted the bill. So we said yes and left very disappointed as there was no longer anything special about coming here . Having brought lots of friends to this restaurant who are now regulars and recommended to others overall I felt it was a disappointing experience and could not longer recommend them for celebrating a birthday etc. However for an ordinary day to day meal then yes . I suspect there are now too many Ivy’s opening and staff being moved around to facilitate this which is why our experience was not up to the standard we had previously had.

We had the most fabulous evening! Our meal was top class, we both enjoyed the best seafood cocktail ever! I had iberico pork loin chop for mains, mouthwatering and so juicy and my husband had the turbot which was melt in the mouth! He then enjoyed a cheese board and I tucked into a blackberry sundae. Absolutely delicious! Great service, friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back!

Service and food were very good up to our expectations the strange fact is the wine glasses were not wine, crystal glasses which could be expected in that kind o restaurant. It was pouring rain and the cloak service was not up tu up par

I do recommend this place we did receive a little desert to celebrate our weeding anniversary.

Staff were very rude and behaved like Neanderthals. We were shocked to meet such rude staff at a restaurant and almost couldn’t believe them. Definitely will be avoiding this place from now on.

Lovely dinning room. Terrible food - pre prepared, no changes allowed, over cooked, poor taste. Poor service. Such a shame. I came here as I had had such a good meal recently at the Ivy Richmond and was very disappointed. There is no consistency in quality of food or service across the Ivy chain.

I had a lovely afternoon tea in the garden room with six friends to celebrate my 60th birthday. I must say it was one of the best afternoon teas I’ve experienced so far. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.

We were a bit disappointed. Usually Ivy is a very good choice for afternoon tea, but it was not this time. Sandwiches were freezing cold, like they just came out of the super cold fridge. The plate with scones was broken and was literally falling apart. One of the desserts was dirty on the bottom and I was very lucky to notice before I had a bite. It was replaced by the manager, but still it was not very nice.
I really hope this will get fixed soon.

The service was exemplary. The food excellent. My one complaint was the noise made by the 3 men at the next table. There were 9 tables in the area. All others spoke perfectly reasonably. Just this one table was unacceptably noisy with one man in particular roaring with laughter every few minutes.

Great location and beauty interior. Food was delicious and service perfect- however acoustics and lighting are dreadful- way too loud and too dark. It's much better for breakfast!

We had a wonderful evening at the Ivy Chelsea Garden. The food and service was as always brilliant, an the fact that I requested a table in a specific part of the restaurant and got it without question made the whole experience even better. Can’t wait to return.

Have been to a couple of The Ivys now and I think this has become my favourite, it just feels right in every way. Looking forward to trying the outside space in summer.

I don’t recommend it!

I usually love it here, but very disappointed this time. Service was really poor. I had to chase up my coffee twice and breakfast (for 2 people) took 45 minutes to arrive and was then wrong

Most the tables where empty and they said they where incredibly busy and that is why service was bad, would not like to see them full.

One person on the table had to wait a half hour more for his coffee compared to other who ordered at the same time and we cancelled part our order as we had finished our main meal and it had not come.
The wait staff were apologetic and gave us the coffees free to apologise and were very polite.

We didn't like the fact when we arrived @ 8 we had to leave the table by 10 as they closed that part of the restaurant.
I would not recommend the Chelsea restaurant but I would recommend the others
